5 medium apples (750g), peeled, cored, sliced thickly
¼ cup (55g) caster sugar
2 tablespoons water
½ teaspoon mixed spice
1½ cups (225g) frozen seedless cherries
125 grams amaretti biscuits, crushed
¼ cup (30g) ground almonds
¼ cup (35g) slivered almonds
¼ cup (35g) plain flour
80 grams cold butter, chopped finely
Preheat oven to 200°C. Grease four 1¼-cup (310ml) ovenproof dishes.
Combine apple, sugar, the water and spice in a medium saucepan; cook, covered, over medium heat, about 5 minutes or until apple is just tender. Remove from heat; stir in cherries. Divide mixture among dishes.
Meanwhile, combine crushed biscuits, ground almonds, slivered almonds and flour in a medium bowl; rub in butter. Sprinkle mixture evenly over apple mixture.
Place dishes on an oven tray; bake about 20 minutes or until browned. Serve with ice-cream, if you like.
You can use any frozen berry you like, instead of the cherries.
